Not that I’m complaining or anything but I was a little taken aback to find these snowdrops already blooming in our backyard. Last year they seemed early when they bloomed in February; I had expected them in early March. But mid-January? I guess they really are drops of snow, now that the real snow seems to last but a short while.
Also, I can see why the blue birds are sticking around this year–there still seem to be plenty of bugs around for them to eat. This big and ugly house-fly landed on our front door and seemed plenty active in the sunny mid-winter day. Yuck! (I guess if I was a bird I might say Yum!)
